A total of 54 Myanmar migrant workers from Thailand returned through the Myanmar-Thai Friendship Bridge (2) yesterday.
This is the second day of receiving Myanmar migrant workers from Thailand.
“What we additionally made is the marks for 700 people to take their places outside the BCF zone. We will give face masks at these places if they don’t have. Wash basins were set up. The most important things are to stay six feet away from each other, to wear face masks, and to wash hands,” said Myawady District Administrator U Tayzar Aung.
Kayin State social affairs minister U Bo Bo Wai Maung, Kayin State Hluttaw representative U Thant Zin Aung, District Administrator U Tayzar Aung, Police Lt-Col Thet Lin Oo, Township administrator U Phyo Zaw Ko Ko, and officials were examining the returnees’ health conditions, and fulfilling other needs for them.
“Those who returning from Thailand came from different regions and states. I also came from Ayeyawady Region. We all are Myanmar nationals. We are welcoming them like our brothers, sisters, and relatives,” said Ko Sa I Khant, a volunteer.
Yesterday’s 54 returnees consist of three from Kayah State, 13 from Kayin State, two from Mon State, 26 from Bago Region, five from Magway Region, one from Mandalay, one from Yangon, and three from Ayeyawady Region.—Htein Lin Aung (IPRD) (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
